In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian: Special Book Feature: Boats for Papa

Every once in a while a special book comes my way and I want to celebrate it… here’s one I couldn’t resist featuring:

Boats for Papa by Jessixa Bagley – This is a very touching book. Brought tears to my eyes. I love when picture books are able to do this. It is all about a little beaver who has a hobby of building boats and always sends one out into the water with a message for his papa, who is deceased. After a long time of this tradition, he realizes that his mom actually is rescuing the boats when they get washed back to shore. Such a touching book.

Goodreads Summary: “Buckley and his Mama live in a cozy cabin by the ocean. He loves to carve boats out of the driftwood he finds on the beach nearby.
He makes:
big boats
long boats
short boats and
tall boats,
each one more beautiful than the last, and sends them out to sea. If they don’t come back, he knows they’ve found their way to his papa, whom he misses very much.”
